Testimonials

  • “We enjoyed ourselves so much in your beautiful home! Loved St. Simon’s, the beach, bocce ball on the sand, golf, scavenger hunt, the lovely pool, and beaches – and last but not least – the food! We really lived on the back patio.”

Many thanks!……Thank you again for another wonderful vacation! I’ve been in the wonderful carriage house for 10 days and really hate to leave in the morning. But I’m refreshed and renewed and ready for anything now!”

    Family from Texas

  • “Our three generation family spent a wonderful five days over Thanksgiving at The Strachan Carriage House. We could not have been at a more comfortable, convenient and historic location. Many wonderful meals were prepared in the kitchen – very easy. We walked the beach, main street, and the lighthouse. The third generation cousins will have so many memories of this family reunion.”

    Familiy gathered from FL, TN, AL, GA, and Nebraska

  • “The Radford family celebrated the 80th birthday reunion of June Radford (Mom). This was our first reunion of the whole family since 2000. The Strachan House made the perfect site for our get-together. The patio by the pool was a wonderful place for everyone to sit and talk in the evening. St. Simons Island is also a great place to visit. Kayaking, bike riding, walks, and the trolley tour were big hits. Also visited the light-house, the cemetery at the Episcopal Church near Ft. Frederica. And we can’t forget that Mom proved her prowess at miniature golf at the age of 80.”

    Family members from NC, TX, NC, CA, GA, and FL.
